Come out for a walk in the nighttime to one of Alta’s best viewpoints, and watch the sun never set! On this 4,5km arctic wandering trip we leave the city behind and head down toward the fjord, passing several historic landmarks along the way. Our local guide will tell you about the history of Alta from the earliest settlements to the town of today, plus stories about early northern lights research in the area, nature and culture, Recherche expedition in the fjord, the local church, and the Northern Lights Cathedral.

The tour starts outside the main entrance to the Northern Lights Cathedral. The tour includes coffee/tea, toddy and biscuits. Extra clothing is not provided, so please dress properly - remember that "summer" in the arctic can mean very different things from moment to moment!
